Decreased Helios Expression in Regulatory T Cells in Acute Coronary Syndrome

Regulatory T cells (Tregs) play an essential role in acute coronary syndrome (ACS). However, there is debate about which Treg subsets are truly critical to ACS. Helios, a transcription factor, was recently reported to be a bona fide marker for natural Tregs or activated Tregs with a suppression function, but little is known about its role in ACS. We therefore examined Helios

Proof of a conjecture of Z-W Sun on ratio monotonicity

In this paper, we study the log-behavior of a new sequence { S n } n = 0 ∞ , which was defined by Z-W Sun. We find that the sequence is log-convex by using the interlacing method. Additionally, we consider ratio log-behavior of { S n } n = 0 ∞ and find the sequences { S n + 1 / S n } n = 0 ∞ and { S n n } n = 1 ∞ are log-concave. Our results give an affirmative answer to a...

Salvianolic acid B inhibits mitochondrial dysfunction by up-regulating mortalin

Comparison of different inspiratory triggering settings in automated ventilators during cardiopulmonary resuscitation in a porcine model

Background Mechanical ventilation via automated in-hospital ventilators is quite common during cardiopulmonary resuscitation. It is not known whether different inspiratory triggering sensitivity settings of ordinary ventilators have different effects on actual ventilation, gas exchange and hemodynamics during resuscitation. Methods 18 pigs enrolled in this study were...

Polymorphisms and features of cytomegalovirus UL144 and UL146 in congenitally infected neonates with hepatic involvement

Human cytomegalovirus is a significant agent of hepatic involvement in neonates. In this study, we investigated the polymorphisms and features of the viral genes UL144 and UL146 as well as their significance to congenital hepatic involvement. In 79 neonates with congenital cytomegalovirus infection and hepatic involvement, full length UL144 and UL146 were successfully amplified...

Clinical and Genetic Analysis of Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1-Related Primary Hyperparathyroidism in Chinese

Objective Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1-related primary hyperparathyroidism (MHPT) differs in many aspects from sporadic PHPT (SHPT). The aims of this study were to summarize the clinical features and genetic background of Chinese MHPT patients and compare the severity of the disease with those of SHPT. Design and Methods A total of 40 MHPT (27 sporadic, 7 families) and 169...

How Commonly Is the Diagnosis of Gastric Low Grade Dysplasia Upgraded following Endoscopic Resection? A Meta-Analysis

Gastric dysplasia is a well-known precancerous lesion. Though the diagnosis of gastric low grade dysplasia (LGD) is generally made from endoscopic forceps biopsy (EFB), the accuracy is doubtful after numerous EFB-proven gastric LGD were upgraded to gastric high grade dysplasia (HGD) or even carcinoma (CA) by further diagnostic test with the procedure of endoscopic resection (ER...

Video Superresolution via Parameter-Optimized Particle Swarm Optimization

Video superresolution (VSR) aims to reconstruct a high-resolution video sequence from a low-resolution sequence. We propose a novel particle swarm optimization algorithm named as parameter-optimized multiple swarms PSO (POMS-PSO). We assessed the optimization performance of POMS-PSO by four standard benchmark functions. To reconstruct high-resolution video, we build an imaging...

Mining, Validation, and Clinical Significance of Colorectal Cancer (CRC)-Associated lncRNAs

Background Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the deadliest tumours, but its pathogenesis remains unclear. The involvement of differentially expressed long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in CRC tumorigenesis makes them suitable tumour biomarkers. Methods/Findings Here, we screened 150 cases of CRC and 85 cases of paracancerous tissues in the GEO database for differentially expressed...

Chinese Bone Turnover Marker Study: Reference Ranges for C-Terminal Telopeptide of Type I Collagen and Procollagen I N-Terminal Peptide by Age and Gender

Background Bone formation marker procollagen I N-terminal peptide (PINP) and resorption marker C-terminal telopeptide of type I collagen (β-CTX) are useful biomarkers for differential diagnosis and therapeutic evaluation of osteoporosis, but reference values are required. Methods The multi-center, cross-sectional Chinese Bone Turnover Marker Study included 3800 healthy volunteers...

Association of Six Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms with Gestational Diabetes Mellitus in a Chinese Population

Background To investigate whether the candidate genes that confer susceptibility to type 2 diabetes mellitus are also correlated with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) in pregnant Chinese women. Methodology/Principal Findings In this study, 1764 unrelated pregnant women were recruited, of which 725 women had GDM and 1039 served as controls. Six single nucleotide polymorphisms...

EENdb: a database and knowledge base of ZFNs and TALENs for endonuclease engineering

We report here the construction of engineered endonuclease database (EENdb) (http://eendb.zfgenetics.org/), a searchable database and knowledge base for customizable engineered endonucleases (EENs), including zinc finger nucleases (ZFNs) and transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs). EENs are artificial nucleases designed to target and cleave specific DNA sequences...

Chromosomal deletions and inversions mediated by TALENs and CRISPR/Cas in zebrafish

Customized TALENs and Cas9/gRNAs have been used for targeted mutagenesis in zebrafish to induce indels into protein-coding genes. However, indels are usually not sufficient to disrupt the function of non-coding genes, gene clusters or regulatory sequences, whereas large genomic deletions or inversions are more desirable for this purpose. By injecting two pairs of TALEN mRNAs or...

Carbon-Coated SnO2 Nanorod Array for Lithium-Ion Battery Anode Material

Carbon-coated SnO2 nanorod array directly grown on the substrate has been prepared by a two-step hydrothermal method for anode material of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). The structural, morphological and electrochemical properties were investigated by means of X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and electrochemical...
